Dolores Hildago...a quaint little village in the mountains!
The bus ride itself was quite pleasant, and the buses here are very nice, the terminals are modern and clean, and the buses are on time. It has been awhile since I took a Greyhound in the US, but the last time I did the experience was less than pleasing! The stations were mostly grungy and smelled of diesel and urine, the staff was surly, and the buses were crowded and dirty. By contrast, the buses here have seating nearly the equivalent of a First Class airline seat with plenty of legroom, they are spotlessly clean, and the staff was helpful and courteous. It is interesting a less than affluent country like Mexico can run a first class transportation system, while the US cannot. I am curious to travel on one of their trains as I have used Amtrak a number of times, and while it is a little better than Greyhound, it pales in comparison to the bullet trains I have ridden in Europe.
Next...off to Guanajuato and the Museum of the Mummies!
